Management & Organisational Behaviour Reviews

"Mullins is distinctive because it covers not just organisational behaviour but management as well. It combines a great breadth of coverage with an accessible writing style and attractive layout and design. To myself and to my students, it's a trusted friend." Anna Lee, Lecturer in HRM and OB at Manchester Metropolitan University "I've been a fan of Mullins for years. The book is packed with relevant concepts, examples and exercises that are readily accessible to students at a variety of levels. Students tell me they like the layout, plenty of diagrams and illustrations that help bring bring the concepts to life. The secret of the book's success is that it is so versatile - it can either be read cover to cover as the definitive management textbook, or it can be used as a reference work, enabling students to dip into relevant sections as required." "Brian Good, School of Management, University of Surrey
